DailyDirt: Train Your Brain

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

The human brain is a remarkable organ, but we've only really just started to study it. Scientists are scanning brains with intense magnetic fields and zapping skulls with electrical pulses -- and measuring some differences that could point to ways that'll help people understand how our minds work. Here are just a few examples of projects focused on our brains. By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    Electrical pulses to the brain!!!

    How do I get some? And do they hurt?

    Why Are Our Brains So Hard To Fathom?

    Is it because we’re too smart, or because we’re not smart enough?

      It's definitely because we're not smart enough... maybe someday we'll figure it out, but then there will be something even more complicated to figure out and we'll have to get smarter to understand ever more complicated stuff...

        But if we’re not so smart, that must mean our brains are simpler, therefore easier to understand, doesn’t it?
